My 2nd Brain Laptop Briefcase is a superior case with classic style.
I carry a myriad of products with me to and from work every single day. So, a sturdy, reliable laptop bag is of vital importance to me. On most days, I have my 15” MacBook Pro, iPad Air 2, MacBook Pro charging cable, a couple of battery packs, and many more cables for charging various devices. With that menagerie of products in tow, a bag that provide superior organization, ample space, and a sleek design, is ideal. In researching laptop bags, I came across the My 2nd Brain laptop briefcase from Think Tank Photo and decided to test it out.
My 2nd Brain laptop briefcase at first glance looks like a pretty traditional laptop bag. There is one large main compartment, an outside front pocket, two side pockets, a back pocket for the laptop itself, a back Velcro pocket, and a sleeve for suitcase handle travel. Now, the tradition stops here. When you open the briefcase, it’s a whole new ballgame. My 2nd Brain laptop briefcase was designed as a ‘mobile office’ specifically for Apple power users. This is evident when you discover that there are dedicated iPhone and iPad pockets as well as a storage pouches for Apple specific accessories, like your notebook charger. Every pocket has quick, easy access to your devices in mind. There is an organizer for everything and all the seams are sealed to protect electronics from the rain.
Before testing the My 2nd Brain laptop briefcase, I had all of my daily tech products in a laptop backpack. Everything was pretty much in one compartment. When I transferred them over to the briefcase, I found that everything fit and I still had room to spare. The briefcase seems very well-balanced and weight is distributed evenly. One of the things I look for in a briefcase style laptop bag is that it stands on its own. The bag is so evenly weighted that when everything is in it, it stands up unassisted. Unfortunately, when the laptop is removed, if everything else is still in it, it is a little top heavy and tends to tilt to one side.
I really appreciate the specialized pockets for the major devices. When I first inspected the laptop compartment, I wasn’t sure that there was enough padding for my taste. But, the bottom of the entire case as a nice thick pad that it sits on and that helps to shield the laptop from impact damage when you slide it into the case. The iPhone pocket is also exceptional well thought out. It is lined with a fleece material and includes a small mesh pouch that is great for earbuds or even a Bluetooth headset. I was using an iPhone 6 in a rather thick case for testing. It fit quite nicely and the pocket is large enough for an iPhone 6 Plus although I’m not sure how well it would work with a case on it. I think it might be a rather tight fit. The same is true of the iPad pocket. I currently have a slim case on my iPad Air 2, but sometimes I have a keyboard case with it. In that instance I’m not sure the iPad would fit as nicely.
Overall, this is an exceptional briefcase for a laptop. It’s got a classic style and incredible features to help you stay organized. I had the briefcase in Black, but there are two other colors available Mist Green and Harbor Blue.
